Certified in both chiropractic and acupuncture treatments, Dr. Brent DeRocher seeks to reduce dependence on surgery or medication through a holistic approach to treating the body's muscles and the nervous system that controls them. Acupuncture treatments begin by identifying troubled areas of the body, then stimulating key pressure points to release the flow of blocked energy. Poke-aphobics will be relieved to know that Dr. DeRocher most often uses needle-less electrical stimulation, and polkaphobics will be pleased to learn that accordions are not part of Chinese medical tradition. Meanwhile, chiropractic treatment soothes and helps realign disheveled spinal columns to reduce recurrent pain and return bodies young and old to their full range of motion. The chiropractic exam begins by taking a detailed case history to discover the origins of creaking backs and achy limbs (a $92 value), and x-rays turn their gaze upon the hidden problems other kinds of rays are too polite to notice (an $80 value). During your two relief treatments, the chiropractor will apply carefully directed force to the spinal area, correcting the results of accidents, sports injuries, or everyday slouching (an $80 value). The specialist may also recommend at-home exercises to teach wayward muscles and ligaments about good habits and the dangers of emulating cartoon bodybuilders.
